Mikki Stufflebeem, age 56 of Centerville, Iowa passed away Sunday, October 10, 2021 at her home surrounded by her family.
Mikki was born on August 14, 1965 in Brookfield, Missouri, the daughter of Wesley and Mary Ann (Jakusz) Head. She graduated from Centerville High School with the Class of 1985. She furthered her education at Indian Hills Community College, and received her Associates degree in Liberal Arts and her Microcomputer Specialist degree. In May of 1992, Mikki was united in marriage to Steven Ralph Stufflebeem, and to this union, three children were born, Nathaniel, Jesse and Jeremy.
Mikki was employed as a Jailer at the Appanoose County Law Center for many years, and was most recently employed at Owl Pharmacy for several years.
Mikki enjoyed sitting on the deck visiting with her friends and family. She was very thankful for the people in her life. She was fond of playing solitaire on the computer, and looked forward to the Hallmark channel during the holidays. One of Mikki’s favorite past-times was proving Steve wrong, and it wasn’t hard to do. Mikki loved her family, children, and grandchildren fiercely. She would make the opportunity to spend time with them.
